There are almost forty species of dolphin in 17 genera. They are found
worldwide, mostly in the shallower seas of the continental shelves and are
carnivores, eating mostly fish and squid.
Dolphin shoals visit the shores of Oman in large numbers. Muscat and
Musandam are famous for dolphin watching, although this pastime is also
widespread in A'Sharqiyah South Governorate and AlWasta Governorate, in
addition to Dhofar Governorate. The types of dolphins that visit Oman are:
Indian Ocean Dolphins, the Indo‐Pacific Humpback Dolphins, Risso's
Dolphins, Common Bottlenose Dolphins, Indo‐Pacific Bottlenose Dolphins,
Rough‐toothed Dolphins, Pantropical Spotted Dolphins, Striped Dolphins,
